Remote control of linux

Postby leke » Fri Jul 13, 2012 6:27 pm

I have an idea to use my eeePC as a remote control for my raspberry Pi plugged into my tv. So basically my eeePC would serve as a wireless mouse and keyboard instead of buying a wireless mouse and keyboard.

Could someone suggest what parts of Linux I should research to start playing with this idea? Mouse and keyboard drivers perhaps?

Might be simpler to just use a terminal app.

Enjoy the Choice :)

VNC or SSH
(depends whEther you want a GUI)
Or for that matter, a forwarded Xserver screen
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!

I've never heard of VNC, looks like a promising solution thanks :)
